Yes girls, I know that now - once I checked the manual.  Certainly didn't know it before though.  Obviously haven't needed it until now. All is well - I tested it and it works  ;) ;) ;)

Did you remember to put it into  *: mode?  Turbo will only work when it is in closed lid mode & also when it is not too hot.

Yep the not too hot one always gets me  :(

Couldn't agree more JD. Before I moved I wasn't allowed to have Internet. Now, I just couldn't imagine life without this wonderful group to share the tmx journey with!!
It should be mandatory!!

I discovered that turbo woldn't work when it was too hot on my first attempt at making gnocchi. I thought I'd broken the machine and was devastated until DD looked in the manual.

Glad it wasn't just me who made that mistake Cookie!  :P

Took me a good 10mins to find out why too.... *blush*

I did the same thing.  I was close to tears and tried to ring my consultant who wasn't home.  In desperation I got out my manual.  I should really read the whole thing through. . . . . .  ;D

Wonder wonder wonder. Don't you deserve this machine? Of course you do. We, like cookie,  are living off our super, and I was sick for about a week worrying about spending the money but  decided that life is short and days can be long and what a lot of  fun I could be having.  Unlike Thermomixer I could not care less that my spouse does not even know how to boil water and has never in all of his 80 years cooked a thing. Funny thing is that he IS interested in the TMX and watches me use it all the time He just hangs out in the kitchen. Don't iknow if I am happy about that or not but he is so frightened of it he won't even turn the damn thing off when it shouts at me. As for putting it back together I get a lot of enjoyment to watch him trying. LOL!

Buy it and love it. You will not regret it.

I don't know if I would let that DH of yours reassemble the bowl Gretchen - it could lead to a disaster :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) You must however, teach him to turn it off though.  Perhaps leave it beeping and in the end it would drive him crazy and he would have to turn it off for his own sanity.

tell him my 3yo turns it off for me  :D :D :D

actually the past few days my kids have suddenly wanted to start help cook, after 12-18 months of not, and my 3.5yo does the lot - puts the lid open / shut, does the time, speed etc !! (of ourse i have to tell her what to do as she's not good with numbers etc yet, but the 5&6yo's don't need anymore than just the basics ;))

Good training Karen - won't be long and the children will be able to take over the cooking of the family meals. ;) ;) ;)

I am so pleased for you Wonder. The sweats should stop soon. LOL!  And oh yes Judy my DH did put it together twice and when I lifted the jug the bottom was not attached at all. DH did not see that he had done anything wrong. Then he left the seal off. Now he is not touching it at all.  Just a well.  Brazen there is a world of difference between a smart 3 year old and an 80 year old ;D :-)) :D.
